Photographer's Note

The U.S. first lighthouse was in 1792 on the southern end of the entrance to Cheasapeake Bay. It was made of Aquia Creek sandstone, which was also used in the construction of the White House. Its tower is a octangular truncated pyramid rising 90 feet to its light.
Today the public may climb its interior stairs and enjoy the fine view from its observation platform.
